1)Can i collect my ticket at Xiamen station instead?
2)Can I collect my ticket 1day advance?
3)How early do I have to reach the station before the boarding time?

Yes, you can collect the ticket from another railway station in advance, for example, a few days in advance. If you collected ticket before travel date, with paper ticket in hand, 30 to 40min at station should be OK unless you are traveling during holiday time. If you decide to collect ticket on the day of travel, maybe 1.5 hours at station is needed.

I suppose it may around CNY80 if count by the distance. Or you may consider to use the metro service to Zhenhai Road and then walk to the ferry terminal or your hotel nearby.

No idea of "Kooi Hong" village. From Xiamen to Nanan, you could take train from Xiamen or Xiamen North to Quanzhou.

You need to use the rail service. Most of the high speed rides will go from Xiamen North Station. You can take the airport shuttle bus to reach the North Station and then take the rail. It is recommended to buy the tickets in advance as they sold out sometimes on the travel date. To buy a ticket or collect a ticket on spot, the airport would not work, only railway station.

It is not possible to reach Fuzhou at 1pm. It may take you around 1 hour at the airport for the immigration, about 1 hour for the shuttle bus to North Station (waiting and transfer). You also need at least 1 hour for the ticket collection or buying a ticket at railway station.

Transport from Xiamen airport to Pingtan
Will arrive at Xiamen intl airport on 16 Dec, 2018, around 11am, with 5 pax, what is the straight/faster way to travel to Pingtan?
Answers (1)
Answered by Jeanne | Sep. 30, 2018 00:13

I read that there is bus to Pingtan taking around 3.5 or 4 hours. There seems a bus around 1pm at Fanghu bus station and Jimei bus station, not sure if you are able to get it.

If not, you may go to the railway station by bus first and then take the high speed ride to Fuqing. Finally change to the bus to Pingtan.
